Super Simple Homemade Lavander Air Freshener

I found this earlier this week. I love homemade toiletries and cleaning products, but sometimes the recipes are a little intimidating.  This one is super simple and definitely worth trying.


Baking soda naturally absorbs odours, so why not take advantage of that to create simple, inexpensive air fresheners?

Here’s how:

Use a hammer and and a nail to poke holes in the lid of a small canning jar. (The heart is a nice touch, but clearly not necessary)

Fill the jar about 1/4 full with baking soda

Add 6-8 drops of lavender essential oil

Put lid on and place in any spot that could use some freshening. Every once in a while, give the jar a gentle shake to boost it’s air freshening power.
